Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the 20th century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers. What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of victims, and what was his hold over the young women who obeyed his orders? Now available for the first time in unabridged audio, the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime is brought to life by acclaimed narrator Scott Brick.

“One of the best crime stories ever written.” (Chicago Sun-Times)
It amazes me how Manson was able to have followers that would die or kill for him. Sad they chose him to follow.
Say something about yourself!
Exceeded expectation, narration is perfect for the book.
A must read for any true crime fan and anyone interested in the Manson case.
Incredible story. I was totally pulled in. Fantastic narration by Scott Brick. I was worried that I wouldn't get through such a long book but I finished it in 10 days! The writing as well as Brick's performance are so compelling that I wasn't bored for a moment.
The creepy performance plus all the gory details make it a very scary book. I listened to it at night and would wake up with any little noise.
The introduction. He begins by describing the entire murder scene.
I haven't listened to another one, but look forward to it.
Book was good, just has an immense amount of information. It reminds me of taking a college course. You have to take notes or else you'll lose track of all the different people involved. Great information, great reading, wished it was more concise.
Scott Brick did a stupendous job narrating. This book is riveting and never gets dull. I highly recommend it to anyone, even more so if you have any interest in The Beatles or The Beach Boys.
I've never read the print version
I never read a non fiction book like this one.
My favorite character was definitely Vincent Bugliosi; the prosecutor who tried the case and authored the book. But Charles Manson was one of the most interesting characters in history. An amazing manipulator.
Yes.. Absolutely riveting
There is so much misinformation about this case and the Manson family in general. Anyone who is ever slightly curious about the Manson murders should read this book. I promise that you will NOT be disappointed.
There are many things in this book I did not realize about the whole Manson Murder era. I found this book to be full of a lot of interesting information, told in a very easy to follow way. This held my interest throughout the entire book. I may even have to listen again to fully absorb everything. A very worthwhile telling of a dark page in history.
Excellent narrator. Clear voice, very well paced. I will be looking for more books with this narrator!
I hope the prosecutors handling the Boston Marathon Bombing trial have listened to this. This is a fascinating story of true crime, investigation and legal procedure. I strongly advise you to spend your credits and time on this book.
